His odyssey helped fuel campus protests, emboldened medal-winning black athletes to raise defiant black-gloved fists at the Mexico City Olympics of 1968, brought anti-war sentiment into American living rooms and contoured wider debates over race and democracy that endure to this day. Black Power shaped Ali's global political imagination, offering him a framework to link his religious beliefs, athletic gifts, and outspoken personality.
The Confederate battle flag is, at its core, a symbol of white supremacy rooted in antebellum slavery. The Civil War, which began at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, in 1861 and concluded at Appomattox, Virginia, in 1865, was fought over the continuation of racial slavery and the very meaning of American democracy.
" The bout was fought іn brutal heat and Ali won whеn Frazier'ѕ trainer ѡould not allow hіm t᧐ go out for the final round. Aⅼi defended һis title thrеe timｅs in 1975 Ьefore meeting Frazier οnce more in Oсtober іn the "Thrilla in Manila.

He proved more accessible than Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, who gave Ali his name as part of a successful effort to pry the young champion from the grips of his most important mentor, Malcolm X. By the late 1960s, Ali's unforgiveable blackness helped him emerge as a transcendent and global figure of black liberation.

He became more "black" than James Brown, the godfather of soul, who shouted to the world that he was "ρroud" to be black.
